London – Koko Rose Media is proud to announce the expansion of its agreements with licensing agents Empire Multimedia, Burda Brand Management and Think Tank Emporium to include its latest preschool brand Flora of the Forest. All three agents currently represent Deer Little Forest, an arts & lifestyle brand by Flora of the Forest, creator Jo Rose. Flora of the Forest is a preschool show based on a concept by Jo Rose, in development with three-time Emmy-winning Executive Producer Karen Fowler and BAFTA and Emmy-lauded studio King Rollo Films.
The show stars a singular seven-year-old girl who lives with her mum in a tree house, surrounded by forest friends Rowan fox, Barley-Crumb badger and Lockhart deer. Mom’s awesome job at the natural history museum inspires Flora’s incurable curiosity every day, motivating her and the gang into all manner of adventure, involving the exploration, collection and creation of all manner of forest treasures. Think Tank Emporium is an independent Licensing Agency founded and managed by Joan Packard Luks and David Wollos with operations in the US and Canada. Joan Packard Luks and David Wollos comment, “Flora of the Forest is a fun and original show with aspirational characters and inspirational STEAM subjects that make it very appealing for a huge range of products. Together with the gentle humour and genuinely unique illustrative style, we are confident that Flora of the Forest will soon become one of the strongest preschool properties in the industry.”
Empire Multimedia will represent Flora of the Forest in South East Asia and Greater China. With offices across Asia and over 30 years of experience, it is a genuine licensing maverick in the region, known for its dynamic and multi-pronged approach to brand building through creative promotions, on-line marketing, competitions, QSR’s, and special events. Based in Munich, with operations in Germany, Austria and German-speaking Switzerland, Burda’s portfolio consists of an appealing mix of valuable brands for children, teens and adults. All rights to Flora of the Forest are held by Koko Rose Media and will present the property for the first time at BLE, stand J27. TV Distribution rights are managed by Bejuba! and will resent the series at Mipcom in the Canadian Pavilion A0.01.
